String the Beads
First of all, Put the beads onto the thread. Use the beading wire. Fold the beading wire in half and twist the ends together. Leave a small loop big enough to put the thread through where the bend in the wire is. Put the thread through the loop and twist to close. String on as many seed beads needed. About 12 for every inch of length of necklace desired. Add more for added insurance. The sample is choker length.
Ch 3, pull up 3 beads and secure with a ch. Ch 3 more add 3 more beads. Continue in this way until the necklace is the length you want. Fasten off.
Tie one end onto clasp and pull the thread through the ring 3 times. Then weave the end into the necklace and make a tiny knot about 1 ½" away from the clasp and secure knot with jewelry glue. Repeat with other end. Try not to twist the chain.
